Amica at Swan Lake is located in Markham, Ontario, a perfectly sized city made up of alluring, historic villages and calming green spaces, just 35 minutes north of Canada’s largest city, Toronto. Our retirement community reflects the very best of its neighbourhood with beautiful lake views, splendid garden, complete with gazebo, charming interior design and staff members who bring joy to each day.


Amica at Swan Lake is best described as welcoming, with its lovely gardens, elegant interior design and amenities that are simply second to none.

Our accommodations are in the style of apartments, our offerings begin with a simple parlour suite and move on to a one-bedroom suite, with or without a den, to a two-bedroom suite. All of our suites are spacious and cleverly designed to house furnishings of various styles and sizes, and are equipped with a kitchenette.

We are committed to your safety and security and offer a 24-hour SARA emergency response system as well as underground, climate-controlled parking. You will find that all of our physical spaces are accessible by wheelchair, and that our concierge services are always available.


Amica at Swan Lake is a retirement community that celebrates life on a daily basis. We offer intriguing lectures from travelers and thinkers, cello and piano concerts, rollicking card games and, of course, a pub where you can sit and have a pint at the end of a glorious day.

Whether you are a watcher of birds, a reader of books, a sports fanatic or of an artistic temperament, you’ll find activities and outings to tempt you, as often as you care to be tempted.


Our spacious, inviting dining room provides the perfect setting for our lunches and dinners, which are prepared with zest and imagination by our Red-Seal certified chefs. You will find our menus to be as delectable as they are varied and healthful, and any special requests you may have, such as gluten-free or low sodium meals, will be fulfilled.

Our Bistro is just the spot to enjoy a lovely continental breakfast with coffee, tea and snacks available all day long.

Oh, and entertaining is outrageously easy when you reserve our private dining room and let our chef do the cooking for you and your family and friends.


At Amica at Swan Lake, we focus on you as an individual, not on you as a retiree: We offer a variety of important services, like housekeeping, transportation services, health monitoring and more. We believe in living well, just as you do.

Our supportive staff members, inspiring activities and social events come together to create a lifestyle that allows you to flourish.

The best way to decide whether our lifestyle should be your lifestyle is to come to visit us, either on a tour or for a temporary stay. Our door is always open.
